% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virginia, florida, and see whether in fact the race has tightened, particularly in a state like ohio, wolf, where the president had a commanding lead by five or six points. let's see if in that state which the republican campaign has to win, i believe, if mitt romney's to become president, let's see if the poll numbers in that state of ohio which we're going to see as this week proceeds, let's see if those numbers have tightened there because that's going to be a k
nationally. right now, romney at 49%. obama at 45%. that's a significant shift from only a few weeks ago. same poll, likely voters at obama 51%. romney, 43%. that's a dramatic shift indeed. let's get the reaction, jim acosta is traveling with the republican presidential nominee. what are they saying, jim? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that mitt romney is standing behind me addressing an understandably small crowd of supporters here at newport news, virginia, it is raining buckets here. but that's not dampening the enthusiasm of the romney campaign. they feel very good about this poll that just came out from the pew research center, showing a four-point lead among likely voters for mitt romney over the president. that is a kind of poll that they have not seen in some time. so they're very happy about that. i got some instant response from a senior romney official who told me over an e-mail a few moments ago that they are encouraged by the enthusiasm that they're seeing from supporters who they call energized. we have been seeing that over the last several days at various cam
. >> steve: then president obama in hollywood making fun of his lousy debate performance last week. >> and everybody here incredible professionals, they're such great friends and they just perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. [ laughter ] >> steve: funny line. this morning, his campaign has a new plan to turn things around and it relies on one person. insider dana perino here to explain. >> pete: and the nascar sprint cup spinning out of control. champ triggering a massive pileup at talladega. see this, believe it on "fox & friends" right now. >> steve: that was the last lap and amazingly, even though cars were flying all over place, nobody seriously hurt. >> pete: thank god. >> gretchen: 15 cars involved. more in later. peter is in for brian today. good morning to you. some head lines now, how should the world view america? in a few hours, we'll find out what mitt romney believes. he's going to give a major foreign policy address in virginia. he is expected to criticize the obama administration's response to the benghazi, libya terrorist attack. he'll
last week in the state of iowa, i believe, that said it was leaning one way or another. o obama or to romney. could that be possible? does anyone know what these early votes are? or are they just guessing? >> it is an educated guess. you know how many registered republicans, how many registered democrats you have. you know when those people vote and you make the guess that if they're registered republican, they're more than likely going to vote for the republican candidate. it's almost like the exit polls. you have to take people at their word that they voted the way they claimed they voted. >> gretchen: well, as we found out in the past, those exit polls are not always exactly as they might appear to be. ken, the former secretary of state, thanks for your time and explanations this morning. >> thank you, gretchen. >> gretchen: have a great week. grim milestone in afghanistan. 2,000 americans killed. so is this the response that you would expect from the commander in chief? >> al-qaeda is on the path of defeat and osama bin laden is dead. [ applause ] (chance of usa). >> gretche
: we talk a lot about what had been going on for the 2 1/2 weeks since the obama administration finally said it was a preplanned terrorist attack. we were wondering who was going to tate fall. james clapper, director of national intelligence, he seems like he's going to be the scapegoat. he's saying maybe we didn't tell the white house in time, maybe they didn't know. take a listen to him a couple years ago. remember this bumbling statement he had here? watch. >> how serious is it? any implication that it was coming here and these are things they have seen were coming here director clapper? i was a little surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh, i'm sorry. i didn't. >> eric: that was diane sawyer doing an interview as there were people being arrested in for terrorism, he had no idea. >> it's almost as if there was picture and picture. he hadn't been briefed well. that was classic, also -- rare because we haven't had the terrorist attacks that we thought we could have had because we have these protocols put in place after 9-11. jim clapper, across the board from w
a handsful of these -- maybe every week. but the soft spot for president obama is that the record for the last four years is not one he can be particularly proud of. he is running on the clinton economy, more than he is on his own -- >> greta: in other words, they were buried -- >> well, whatever -- whatever -- whatever word you want to use, there are not a lot of things to point to in the economic numbers that make you feel good about t. he clarified and said it's because of the romney and ryan policies that they were buried over the larger period than four yierz, but it's a bad comment. it's the four years that you are going to have president obama trying to defend -- tomorrow night. >> the problem is, joe biden talked about the one thing he was not supposed to talk about on the campaign. this is what the obama administration has been militant about -- they want to talk about the bad things of the bush administration and the things they may do in the future that will make them better. they don't want to talk about the last four years, in particular the fact that there arguably h
this have week's debate. president obama claiming mitt romney wants a 5 trillion dollar tax cut, everyone was fact checking this online, but is the president hiding something about his own tax plan. >> alisyn: we'll dive into the numbers next. >> you want to see a stag? >> look at this fight, the ultimate man versus stag. show you the rest of this. >> ♪ ♪ a battlefield, a battlefield ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ or help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. whatever your business challenge, it's hard to see opportunity in today's challenging environment. unless you have the right perspective. bny mellon wealth management has the vision and experience to look beyond the obvious. we'll uncover opportunities, find hidden risk, and make success a reality. bny mellon wealth management if we took the nissan altima and reimagined nearly everything in it? gave
. i think that the obama team is going to double down on that over the next few weeks. >> brett, your reaction to that? >> well, you know, on wednesday night, those policies didn't look so good. a debate's about a competition of ideas, especially a political debate. so the president's got to be able to defend those policies if they truly are superior, and on wednesday night he didn't do a very good job of doing that. >> columnist david brooks and peggy noonan praised romney's performance after its missteps in recent weeks. brooks writing this. romney finally emerged from the fog and at long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. noonan wrote this, america got its first sustained look at the good and competent mr. romney. how much do you think does the public support of leading conservatives like the two of them help romney, not just with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i think it helped some, but the person who helped governor romney most was governor romney. on wednesday night, he was before almost 70 million people, a lot of them undecided
% number. that's something that the obama campaign has spent over $3 million advertising about over the last two weeks. no mention of that. no mention of bain capital. no mention of the tax returns. no mention of outsourcing. and so it seems to me that the president is going to have to look for opportunities, which by the way i think mitt romney handed him last night, but he just didn't seem to hear them. >> he wasn't either prepared or didn't want to get into that kind of debate. >> right. >> so what did romney do last night that we probably haven't seen before? >> well, i think he managed to do a couple of things really well. and i want to play this one bite for you then we can talk about it. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> the big thing he did is that he seemed to be able to relate almost every answer t
that we could have an electoral tie. highly unlikely. so i don't think the election's over. b obama has the lead. we still have a month to go. the next two weeks with three presidential, one vice presidential debates, we have a chance for mitt romney to set a different impression with the american people than he's been able to do so far. who knows what president obama will do and what events are happening in the world. but i'm not sure other than some tightening from a little surge that obama had which i think is receding a little bit, i'm not sure what nate is talking about. >> john, you wrote a column that talks about the debates and the impact of the debates traditionally. and made the case that traditionally it makes very little impact. >> there are many individual moments that make an impression. but to fundamentally change where a race is going is very rare and you need a combination of events. the example that i used in that piece, andrew, was 2000, al gore had a lead of about what president obama has now entering the debates against george w. bush. he had a reputation as a stron
didn't prepare him for the aggressive romney that i saw a few weeks ago on the sunday shows? i think they didn't prepare him. the president has to look presidential. i don't think president obama is going to call mitt romney a liar on the next debate. that's not presidential. he will be more aggressive. i don't think mitt romney is necessarily a liar, he just manages to convince himself that any position is fine at the time. ted kennedy said it best when romney debated ted kennedy, i'm the pro choice candidate, my opponent is the multiple choice candidate. mitt romney says whatever he has to say. there's no core belief there. that is going to be a problem for him in the general election. i think people are into that. i think they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. he pretty much tells it like it is. did he do a good job in the debate? no. i think he could have been more aggressive. >> i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday, on the stump some people are calling it a gaffe, that they want to raise taxes by $1 trillion. guess
